Volunteers brighten Harold Lewis Center

A group of volunteers and students at The Harold Lewis Center donned their gardening gloves to beautify the center by planting 100 fall mums in flower beds.

The volunteers are part of the Community Involvement Committee at Midwest Express Group, East Liberty.

They represent Midwest in the community and encourage associate involvement in and around their surrounding communities.

"The committee plans events throughout the year that focus on a variety of categories ranging from helping Union and Logan County Humane Societies to having multiple families in the Union County Care Train's Adopt-A-Family efforts," said Abby Gansheimer, one of the volunteers. "Just about every month we have some sort of activity."

Several of the volunteers remarked how much they enjoyed the experience.

"We truly enjoyed working with the kids, and I even got a hug from a little girl in the Frog class," added Gansheimer.

"Not only was this great fun for the kids, but it turned out to be a lesson in gardening," said Julien Johnson, HLC preschool coordinator. "We're very appreciative of Midwest Express Group for selecting this as a project. The results were spectacular."
